Kevin Na revealed he had "never cried so much in the past month" after he teamed up with Jason Kokrak to win the QBE Shootout on Sunday evening.
Na put on a putting clinic alongside his fellow PGA Tour pro and Las Vegas resident Kokrak to finish 33-under par and one shot ahead of tournament favourites Sam Burns and Billy Horschel.
Incredibly, Na and Kokrak rolled in nine straight birdies from the sixth hole in the final round as they raced to the top of the leaderboard - much down to Na walking in putts from all over the place.

Na and Kokrak birdied 12 of the last 13 holes to card a round of 12-under 60, enough for a one shot lead over their compatriots Burns and Horschel, who also flew home with a round of 61.
The performance was made even more applaudable by Na when he revealed exactly what he had been going through in recent weeks.
"I lost two good friends of mine in the past month," said Na, referring to the death of Kenny Lee, his good friend from Las Vegas, and also Dustin Smith, a childhood friend of his from when he grew up in California, who also caddied for him.
"He died of a heart attack and it really hit me. I mean I’ve never cried so much in the past month."
